This is the second post of our new projects (cf. here) after the first one published in April about Frank Lloyd Wright and the Masieri Memorial. We are not moving far from the previous one since we will talk about a well-known, worldwide famous, bridge: Rialto Bridge.
For this second appointment with Venetian craftsmanship, the protagonists are Lidia and Olena. They are two tailors modelers, not born in Venice, but who have been living here for many years and who are perfectly integrated with the city and its inhabitants.
In an Erasmus experience, you cry twice: when you arrive and when you leave.
In an Erasmus experience in Venice you keep crying even years after …I am Flo, I am French and I spent one year in Venice thanks to the Erasmus program. It has been the best year of my life so far …
One day, a Venetian told me: it’s either you love it or you hate it.
Being a tourist in Venice is so different than living there. Indeed, it is special only because Venice is special. You won’t realize it until you live there for real.
You feel safe, lucky and happy …
Also it’s very different from anywhere else because there is no car (I used to go to Uni by boat… what a dream!)
